Website Quizzes & Trivia

Under the No Website Reader left behind act, we have to have at least one standardized test on here. Answer the questions, then see the CORRECT answers (with explanations, so you'll LEARN) at the end. But we're not WILD about standardized testing, so we're not going to be too picky about test protocol. We can't be THAT picky - we're already asking you to take a test about a book you may not have even read yet. So if you don't have a #2 pencil, we don't care. Heck, use a crayon if you feel like it. Just don't come crying to us if it doesn't wash off of your monitor. We're also fine with letting you use all of your notes, or, better yet, using the book, to get your answers. And chew yourself some gum.
